accomplished for the very -- to the various speakers from michelle obama and the headliners, michelle obama and bill clinton joe biden, barack obama and a lot of the secondary speakers. mission accomplished. they also had to -- at the same time, while they were at it, sort of a secondary goal is make sure the people understood what lies they had heard in tampa and what the truth really was. i think that mission was accomplished as well. so huge success i believe in getting the message out. they were really focused. they were really on message. when it comes to the speakers, you know, the evening the major speakers were all there between 10:00 and 11:00 east coast time. 7:00 to 8:00 on the west coast. but there were -- the secondary speakers, it was funny. each night, there was sort of one person that blew the place up and really lit the place up. and became an instant star. the first night was duvall patrick, governor of massachusetts. the night after him so wednesday night was congressman emmanuel clever from maryland and l
a convention where do you start, right? >> tuesday night michelle obama knocks it out of the park and absolutely electrifies the crowd. wednesday it gets better and by wednesday morning, the people were just pumped. >> stephanie: yeah, it's not just that we have the policies -- that are better for women, we presented i don't know how many amazing awesome women. that's the best thing you can do is show what awesome women are like including jennifer grandholm. let's hear line of the night. >> now sure sure mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our car so much they even had their own elevator. [ laughter ] >> but the people who design and build and sell those cars well in romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft! [ cheers and applause ] >> stephanie: okay. by the way -- in fact every day we feature someone who gets it done on the "stephanie miller show." jennifer grandholm got done last night. brought to you by granger who gets things done. >> she electrified that crowd. and that's what we needed. i talked to so many people
of suffers, i'm afraid, it suffers by comparison both to bill clinton's speech and michelle obama's speech but also to the two speeches we remember most from the past two conventions where barack obama did world historical barn burners in 2008 and 2004. >> world historical barn burners. eamon, i want to ask you, we talked a lot about we are talking about bumps and sort of the net-net for the president and the democrats coming out of the dnc. the jobs numbers that we got this morning are not great ones. the fact that the unemployment rate has ticked down is of course good but there are mitigating factors there. tell us what you think the effect is on the labor scene as it affects the president going into the final stretch before november. >> well, no doubt about it, this was a lousy jobs number. i'm kind of a silver lining kind of guy and i always look for the silver linings. i can't really find one here. 96,000 new jobs created might sound like a lot, but that's below expectations of about 125,000, and remember, you need to add about 100,000 to 120,000 just to tread water to keep up with p
, ann romney was an asset. michelle obama, who was polarizing in the first campaign, she said a few things, she probably didn't mean them the way they came across, but at one point she said i've never been more proud about my country. she has redeemed herself. republicans concede this point with her work with military families. >> i think both of these women had a job and i don't know why it's always the woman's job to humanize the husband. but be that as it may. but they had to kind of lift the veil, if you will, talk about who their husbands really are as the chief character witness, which wives are. >> they also talked about the choices that they have. they also talked about making sure that you don't slam the door behind you. when you moved up to the next rung of laer of success and we're all in this together. michelle obama especially, the first lady talked about an appeal to moms across the country. >> i thought they were both terrific. they're both a great credit to their husbands and families and to their country. are we ending on a point of consensus? i think we are. thank
convention speeches and maybe not the best convention speech of the week, a distinction michelle obama or president clinton could make. because of realities, the president decided that had to trump soaring rhetoric. >> madam chairwoman, delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: facing the political fight of his life, the 44th president of the united states made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for another four years despite tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place, and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> reporter: four years later the president felt he had to appeal to voters exhausted by the tone of american politics. >> i know campaigns may seem small, even sill sly sometimes. trivial things become big attractions. if you're sick of me approving this message, believe me, so am i. >> reporter: but obama pulled no punches when it came to his republican rival. his references to opponent turned him into a pun
taxful politicians were named ann and michelle. this is how i saw it when michelle obama first entered the arena. she took a look to see what it would look like from the stage. and two weeks ago, who would have thought that weather would threaten to completely disrupt these carefully laid plans. and of course it did. it canceled one night of the republican convention and forced the democratic convention inside. this is what topical isaac looked like from my hotel room. so as bill clinton said in 1988, in closing, if you need more proof that conventions still matter, they're still fun and are still fascinating, if you need more proof that you really can't touch this, i offer you this, mc hammer. see, conventions do matter. if you want to see more of these pictures, come visit our blog, cnn.com/earlystart. we have more pictures there. worth looking at. all right. moving back now, one of the most inspirational stories from this year's u.s. open, it isn't from a tennis player. it's from military vet who has overcome the oddsputee and is now a ball assist taptan to. an amazing story. go to
a specific thing they wanted to do. michelle obama did the character. bill clinton did the unprecedented economic argument. and then president obama did the, you know, hey, the -- made the case for looking forward. each night seemed to have a theme that fit together. look at tampa. you did not have the same thing. it was all about trying to fix the likability ratings, but not a lot of memorable specific details for instance on what a mitt romney presidency would look like. >> yeah. and democrats have been chiding the republicans for not putting more meat on the bones on their ideas. on the other hand, the president's advisers promised there would be specifics in the speech. did you hear any new policy or substance? >> i heard nothing new. more of a -- you know, look, the incumbent trying to make the don't change horses in midstream and making the case that the same ideas he's been advocating that haven't been passed. he will now push to try to them be passed. you didn't hear, you know what, this is going to be how we'll deal with the debt and deficit or entitlement reform or how we'll de
capitalism. in michelle obama's speech she said it's more important to try than to succeed. it is not how much money you make but how hard you work. >> these are all good platitudes. no one is going to disagree money doesn't help happiness and we want to help people that need help. they put forward all these platitudes as if -- they have the good stances. they want to help children. the republicans don't. they want to help people get education. the republicans don't. they want to help people have retirement. every time they say that -- >> all they want to do is talk about it. look at who they're appealing to, people who don't understand what a profit is. what they don't understand is the people who help people are the people who make the most money because making money is a sign of how many people you helped because you figured out what the consumer wanted and gave it to them at a low price and that is how you got rich. >> as long as there is competition. now it's a global market place. >> it's always been a global market place. >> but our companies need to be as lean as they can to succe
